Ya, The problems with CalPERS aren't going to cost us any more or result in service cuts.

Fellow Residents,

Because of your great response, Vice Mayor Ray Mueller has scheduled a meeting on April 23, 7 p.m., so that we can explore union contracts with Staff. You may be amazed at what is revealed.

Council member Mueller organized this meeting and City Manager Alex McIntyre has agreed to attend along with Gina Donnelly the City’s HR director.
The discussion is especially timely because Union negotiations start this month, and because CalPERS has tentatively announced a huge increase in required contributions to its employee pension funds.

Please let me know if you can attend so we may more accurately anticipate the space required. And, start to think about your questions now.

Thanks, Lee Duboc (

Wow, blue collar public worker is nowhere to be found. Given he was told yet always denied that CalPERS was going to come asking for more money I have to wonder why. Not!

To all of you folks that don't think the politicians are bought and paid for by the unions, think again.

Don't miss out on the discussion!
